Specialized OMS Care for Geriatric Patients

Posted on 2/2/2024 by Weo Admin
A smiling elderly man. As you or your elderly loved ones age and require complex dental surgery or facial reconstruction procedures, it is crucial to understand the unique advantages of having treatment performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) with specialized geriatric expertise compared to a generalized dentist. OMSs provide care to mitigate senior health risks.

Tailored Attention to Overall Well-being

Unlike other providers, board-certified OMSs receive advanced training to address elaborate surgery and aging patient cases. They holistically optimize dental restorations and essential functioning while proactively accommodating broader elderly health factors. This includes carefully minimizing surgery times, coordinating essential medicines for underlying conditions, providing comfortable sedation options for reduced organ system resilience, and planning senior-friendly recovery protocols.

Throughout procedures, OMSs prioritize the needs of senior patients above standard practices for more attentive patient-doctor collaboration toward an integrated care result that meets personalized wellness goals. By catering surgery and implants around the unique needs of seniors, including any cognitive, mobility, or other age-related impediments, OMSs deliver dutiful whole-patient health guidance.

Geriatric Jaw Surgery Expertise

Many complex dental issues like serious infections, cysts, and tumors occur more frequently, requiring surgery as we age. Fortunately, OMSs have advanced expertise, including intricate jaw procedures like wisdom tooth removal, aberrant tooth extractions, biopsies, and corrective surgery for bite misalignment or TMJ disorders. These procedures are all conducted safely to meet dental restoration needs for lasting ability to eat, speak, and smile properly.

For major trauma or oral cancer cases involving facial reconstruction, OMSs also specialize in dental implants, grafting, and head/neck flap techniques precisely customized for the aged anatomy. This rehabilitative mastery restores facial form and functions unique to the mature physiology.

For Optimal Senior Care Outcomes, Choose an OMS

Ultimately, for serious geriatric conditions, only OMSs provide senior-adaptive technical experience with the hand skills, anatomical know-how, and care philosophy suited to the health vulnerabilities of older patients. Trusting complex dental surgery needs to this specialty training ensures gentle, masterful treatment with your broader wellness prioritized.
